Struggles: A Homekeeper's Journal Post

This post is a part of Homekeeper's Journal at Christian Homekeeper.  Head over there to see more journal entries of homekeepers.

I struggle in my kitchen with …..dishes. It seems like there are always dishes to wash. Maybe we eat too often? I feel like as soon as I get the kitchen cleaned up, it's time to clean it again.

Struggles of any kind have a tendency to make me ……stressed. I am a girl that likes things planned and organized. When things are too spontaneous or chaotic, I stress out a bit. Or maybe a lot!

I struggle more when …….things are out of my control. I guess I'm too much of a control freak!

When it comes to people, I struggle …..with listening and being there. I want to "fix" their problem, but I am rarely qualified to do that.

When it comes to struggles, I believe the Lord wants me to know… depend on Him, to trust Him and realize that He is the Author of peace. His yoke is easy, but the one I put on myself is often not.


  1. I struggle with all these things as well..thanks for posting, it always helps to know you aren't alone. :)

  2. I, too, have most of the same struggles as you. Yes, as Emily said, it's good to know you're not alone.
